Stock 350 needs more

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. Purchased a 72 Monte Carlo this last weekend. It has a 350/ 350 in it. 

It needs more power. I'm completely new to carbed setups and just not sure where to start. I did order longtubes already. Stock exhaust wasn't cutting it for me.

I've been eyeing different intake manifolds and new carbs for now. Id eventually like to throw a set of heads and a cam in later on. 

What do you guys recommend? 

Thank you!

Hey Damon. Without changing the cam I would install a performer rpm and a 650 dp. This way when you upgrade cam you won't be spending money twice. Aluminum heads will make it better. I also recommend an msd distributor and 6al. The factory points leave alot on the table. Doesn't sound like you want to keep it looking original so I would start there.

Welcome Damon!

I suggest you consider a Holley or Fitech EFI unit instead of a carburetor. The only down side is upgrading the fuel system. But in the long run, it'll run better in all conditions than any carb ever will.

Thank you for the recommendations! That sounds like an awesome start.

Thanks for the suggestion! I think I want to stay with a carb though. My other project is a newer car with efi and I'd just like a simple carb setup on this one.
